Let's here some rock n' roll!From left to right is Nick, Chris ( Holly's fiance), Tina, and Holly!This is Jeff Eric's brother faking sleeping!!!And this when the little ones got to open their presents. the floor was just covered with wrapping paper. Hopefully no one got lost in all of the paper!!!

Happy Holiday's everyone!!!

CHRISTMAS PIX

Another Holiday gone. You prepare for it for a couple of months and it is gone in seconds. This year I found myself not making all the candy I usually make nor the cookies. I did get some made but not like I used to. And believe it or not I was not done shoppen this year until the 24th. How scary is that. Now the sad part I just mail some of my Christmas cards out on the 24th and still have lots still to mail!


Any who I have loads of pictures to share with you all for starters I got new glasses so here is one with my new glasses one.

We as a tradition always give peanut a pair of pj's for Christmas Eve. So drum roll here is the 2008 pj's!


Here is my love of my life in his new sweatshirt that we had gotten him. He is styling!!!
Here is a picture of Stephanie and Travis in their matching sweatshirts. Just don't notice who is on the front. We haven't changed Travis into liking the Broncos yet! Ain't they cute?
Eric got me a new digital camera for Christmas and this is a picture of me opening it. And yes I have one but I wanted one that I could carry with me all the time. I just love it as you can see in this picture. Giggle giggle I was just a little excited!!!

Brule'

Last night we went and seen Brule' in Sioux City. And they were just awesome as usual. We have gone and seen them the past four years now, the first time was in Omaha and the rest was in Sioux City. We have taken our mom's to it for their Christmas presents. This year my mom didn't get to go cause she is in Idaho visiting my brother for the Holidays. But this year was a little different cause the Sioux City Orchestra was there also. It was nice they had the choirs from WITT (Western Iowa Tec) collage and Wayne State collage. They sang for about an hour, then we had intermission while Brule' set up for their part. I was disappointed cause they only played about 5 songs with the orchestra. We usually see them perform for about 2 hours. :0(
Don't get me wrong but it was nice and all but when you have gone all these years and have seen them perform that long and get to hear almost all of their songs it was a little disappointing. Their Native American dress was really bright and beautiful, not that they are never that way this year just seemed more brighter. Here are the pictures I took, except for the last one Stephanie took it for me.This little guy was there last year and was just a baby. I think he likes to have his picture taken what do you think?

This is Nicole and she plays the flute. Stephanie really loves watching her cause she too plays the flute.


This is Paul, Nicole's dad. He plays the keyboards.

This is Mosses and he is the drummer and let me tell you he is just awesome in my book and a good looking guy!


These are the dancers that performed during the songs. Now you can see their colors of their Dress ware.

Now this is HOOPS! I just love watching him dance with the hoops, he makes me tired just watching him. I have my picture taken with him every year well I think just the last three years any way.

The Weather Outside is Fightful!!!

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!

It's is 1 degrees out side here at 9:30 pm, the wind chill is -23. Are you cold yet? The wind is howling out side we had gotten some snow today but you can't enjoy it cause it is FREEZING here.

Hump day Wednesday

Happy hump day Wednesday! Just got back form Bible study and thought I would share with you some of my holiday decorating I have done. Keep in mind it is all not done yet but it will get there. So this first picture is of my mom's living room. Yes mom I used your living room hope it is okay didn't want just one side of the house decorated think that would look funny.



Now the next ones are of my new white Christmas tree that has my snowmen ornaments on it. Ans soon it will have photo ornaments on it just got to get them all out and done so I can put them on it. And yes peanut there are Christmas presents under the tree now see.




This is my china cupboard that is now in the kitchen and I have all my snowmen on it. Think I have plenty? If you ask my family they would say yes!!! :0)




This one is my talking snowmen and as you can tell they have Rosy cheeks when they talk. These cute guys drive my daughter and husband crazy when they go off cause they are motion activated. Just toooo darn cute if you ask me.

And now this is my big tree that is in our living room. I won't put presents under this tree this year cause really there is no room underneath it for any thing. I have a train that goes around it also but this year I didn't put the batteries in it cause we never really made it go around the tree. I have always wanted a train that went around my Christmas tree. Now I hope you have enjoyed your tour of some of my decorations!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

It's starting to look alot like Christmas!

You know that old Christmas song the one that goes like this "It's Starting to Look A lot Like Christmas" Come on sing it with me. :0)


We are getting our first measurable snow fall tonight so guess who had to get the camera out and take a few clicks on it? Yeah you got it me. These pictures were taken about 10:30 PM. We are now under a winter advisory so we are going to get more snow. they are saying up to 4 inches. Wow! I guess it is close enough to Christmas now that I can start wishing for snow. I know every one hates it but it is sooooo pretty coming down with no wind just snow. That is the best kind. Now I think Sioux City is really getting the brunt of it cause when I was up there this morning and early afternoon it was raining, and when I was coming home it was starting to freeze so that is not good at all. Peanut said they were getting a lot of it. Well I won't make you wait any longer for the snow pictures I just know you are dieing to see them. lol! These were taken in the front of the house.

Christmas Shoppen

Yippee my Christmas shoppen is done for this year! I have really never been so behind in my shoppe as I was this year. The sad part every one is getting less than normal, especially the kid. Even Eric and I decided not to exchange gifts this year so we can go on vacation back to Indiana this spring or summer. The first thing we need to do is get new tires and some other things that just might pop up when they check the car out. I need new glasses. We are also trying really hard to pay off our credit cards as soon as possible. We have two that are really close. Which I am really glad for cause I have been paying more on all of them so we can get them payed off. I will hope to God that we will be smarter than we were this last time. It has scarred me having this debit over our heads with the way things are now days in the world. Well it almost bed time for me I am soooo tired that I need tooth picks to keep them up. :0) So till we meet again have a great day or week which ever it may be.
